In Like Larry - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Larry gives Cindy and Janet gifts to thank them for letting him live with them, so Janet gives him a kiss. However, three seasons later in the episode "Friends and Lovers," Janet kisses Larry at her wedding to which Larry says "Janet, that's the first time you've ever kissed me."

The Not-So-Great Imposter - S5-E9

Revealing mistake: In Angelino's kitchen, when Mr. Angelino comes in and mentions steaks for eight people are needed, look behind him at the door's window. Janet is briefly seen watching (as if waiting for her cue to enter), then quickly ducks out of sight. A second later, she's seen again while Angelino asks Felipe to help him in the freezer. She then runs in the door with Furley as if they first arrived at that moment.

Janet's Secret - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Janet's father hands Jack the gift a microphone appears for a second at the top of the screen. (00:03:15)

Chrissy's Cousin - S5-E7

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Maxine comes out of the bathroom and yells "Jack" a microphone appears for a second at the top of the screen. (00:25:05)

And Baby Makes Four - S5-E17

Plot hole: To avoid conversing with Cindy about Cindy's alleged pregnancy, Janet picks up an ashtray off the table and claims it's filthy and runs with it into the kitchen. None of the roommates were known to have smoked and no ashtray was seen (in the apartment) in any other episode. What was the point of an ashtray all of a sudden?

Suggested correction: While it might not have been seen previously, it doesn't mean they didn't have one. At that time many non-smokers had ashtrays in their homes (my grandparents did and often used it to hold change or keys). However, they may have had an occasion to have it out for something that we never saw, since we don't see every moment of their lives.

There was an episode with an ashtray and an old man came to stay with them. He was homeless and he did smoke in the episode.

Double Trouble - S5-E19

Continuity mistake: When Furley enters the apartment at the start of the party, the outside weather is crystal clear. Less than 2 minutes later, Furley tells "Austin" the fog is very heavy and the airport is closed down. Then upon opening the front door, tons of thick fog is all over outside. While fog can roll in very quickly, how could Furley even bring up the fog in the first place when it was not there at all when he walked in?
